Ryohei Tanaka :: Paper Cuts


Last week, my wife and I had the good fortune of meeting and being invited to dinner with Japanese artist Ryohei Tanaka who is currently showing his intricate, symmetrical paper cut work at our friend Beth’s space, Cullom Gallery, in Seattle. The night started with a “performance” by Ryohei in which he discussed his work and created several cut-paper pieces on the spot using ordinary craft scissors, with many of us receiving very nice cut-paper portraits (see mine above, top left). Ryohei’s work is on view at Cullom Gallery through May 30th and the work is very reasonably priced. Go check it out!
